Beijing gardens aims at fabricating a public space inserted in the middle of a frantic Beijing frabric- main roads, elevated highways, etc.- a small, intimate and intense environment that allows the pedestrians a space to stop, contemplate and relax. The result is a combination of sharply/intense distortions of the ground becoming giant pots/enclosed garden areas which frame pedestrain paths and circulation alongside a concrete, steel and vegetation enviroment. The project explore the idea of thickened ground and landscapes pockets for reflection, relaxation and ultimate playfulness.
